The story of Eric Weideman and his ex–band 1927 is one of the most intriguing in recent Australian pop history. In 1988, the group was a truly local phenomenon, selling more than 350,000 copies of their debut album "...ish".
Drawn inexorably into the vortex of mass success, 1927 swiftly lost control, playing out a familiar rock tune: the group's second album, The Other Side, failed to match the sales of its predecessor and 1927 gradually slipped from view even as it began to buckle under the strain of touring.
Today, Eric Weideman lives on the Gold Coast and maintains a solo career.
Update - Eric is living in Perth maintaining a solo career and does reform 1927 every now and then. If you want to hear one of his recent ventures listen to http://www.last.fm/music/Damien+Cripps+Band/+tracks a track called 'pictures' Eric did the second verse and some harmonies. There is a video there too
